Duckie Loves Christmas

Bit of fun with some cardboard fashioned into a heart shaped "pin hole" over the 50mm lens and Duckie on a ruler (cloned out).

    Apparently it's all the rage at the moment, although I've had my cardboard cut-out for about 8 months now, just haven't had a reason to use it.

    Brillinat, David! But wait, did Duckie died because he looks like a floating ghost of the past. (o^^o)

    singing his little heart out.

    (pun intended : ) )
  • David de Groot said:
    Not at all Margot, he's flapping his little wings so fast that they look like they're standing still ;-)

    hehehe quite!

    It's nice to see that you let duckie out of the camera bag every now and then for some fresh air! One day, I will meet this infamous duckie!
  • David de Groot said:
    Well yes, he needs to come out every now and then or the incessant quacking drives me batty ;-)
  • petepothole said:
    clever idea!
  • traceyisanozzy said:
    Only you could think of such an awesome idea David, Duckie looks very Merry indeed lol :-)

    The new lensbabies come with heart and star shaped apertures if i recall correctly :)
  • David de Groot said:

    Oh I'm sure someone else has done something similar before... after all, There's nothing new under the sun, or so said some moldy playwright a few centuries ago.

    Yeah I think I saw something about that.

    I was rummaging on the net the other day and found templates for several canon lens hoods that you can make out of cardboard, ingenious I thought, go round with a cereal box stuck to the front of ones camera....... !!!!

    that" nothing new under the sun " is further back than that, I believe it was king Solomon !!

    Yes I've seen the cardboard lens hood site before, if you did it with black cardboard, it'd probably look ok from a few yards away.

    Solomon you say... well I'll be.

    Thanks Lisa, and thanks heaps for the Christmas goodies 8-D

    no, no , I think something like a coco- pops packet would be much better........

    mmm Solomon, he said quite a few clever things, then he sort of lost it with the Queen of Sheba and a few other girls I think.......
  • Yorri¢k said:
    been meaning to try that
  • James Ottaway said:
    Now to get the Canon engineers to make some lenses with these aperture shapes.
  • David de Groot said:
    Well worth it, you can do any shape you like, quite fun really.

    hehe, I can see it now, 100mm f/2.8 Soft Focus with Heart Bokeh.
